The Secret

by Antionio Banderas

Citrus and mint make a refreshing top note duo. Bright and full of light. The drydown adds a sweetish touch, with vanilla and cinnamon the main contributors.

The base is nothing unexpected, with the mix of nonspecific woodsy and white musk notes that appear to be a default template for base notes in many fragrances these days.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

A scent for warmer spring days, this has a nice phase at the beginning, only to slide down further into mediocrity. The notion of it being a bit like a diluted '1 million', as it has been mentioned by other sources, is an apt one.  2.5/5
